Released 26 June 2012

coloradoElbert, CO - In response to the Elbert County Fire in Elbert, CO on June 24, 2012, The Salvation Army is assessing the needs of disaster survivors and responding to immediate needs. While the fire is approximately 90% contained, The Salvation Army is committed to assisting those impacted.

At the Elbert County Fairgrounds evacuee center, The Salvation Army’s local Emergency Disaster Services (EDS) unit is providing for survivors’ immediate needs, such as food, water, and comfort. Additional relief efforts will be implemented as needed.

The Salvation Army is still actively serving the evacuees at both the High Park and Waldo Canyon Fires.
An appeal is being made for financial assistance to fund the relief work in Elbert County.

Those who wish to support The Salvation Army’s disaster response may do so by sending a check earmarked “Disaster Relief” to their local Salvation Army office, or by donating online at www.SalvationArmyUSA.org or by making a credit card donation at 1-800-SAL-ARMY.

The Salvation Army, an evangelical part of the universal Christian church established in London in 1865, has been supporting those in need in His name without discrimination for more than 130 years in the United States. Nearly 30 million Americans receive assistance from The Salvation Army each year through the broadest array of social services that range from providing food for the hungry, relief for disaster victims, assistance for the disabled, outreach to the elderly and ill, clothing and shelter to the homeless and opportunities for underprivileged children.
